Executive summary: Neoconservative bombthrower

Fiendishly clever, Heather Mac Donald makes occasional appearances on Fox News, C-SPAN, and the ilk. There and in various print outlets the Manhattan Institute scholar inveighs against anything and everything liberal. For instance, Mac Donald claims that racial profiling by law enforcement simply doesn't exist. She can't seem to say enough good things about the USA PATRIOT Act. And she only wishes the interrogation tactics at Guantanamo Bay had been intensified.

Much smarter than Michelle Malkin and far saner than Ann Coulter, Heather Mac Donald is precisely the kind of conservative apologist they only wish they could be.
